The Grandchildren Of Elizabeth Taylor Are HIV Activists, Too
by MarkJuly 21, 2016
Somewhere Elizabeth Taylor is grinning from ear to ear. Her grandchildren have not only become HIV activists in their own right, but they dove right into an HIV protest that took over the main stage at AIDS2016 in Durban, South Africa.
In his ongoing video blog coverage of the global event, Mark S. King speaks to the famous and newly minted activists about their belief that laws criminalizing people with HIV are wrong. Mark also profiles a gay lieutenant colonel who had his military service to our country “erased” after he was wrongly accused of not disclosing his status to a sex partner.
Meanwhile, the AIDS2016 Global Village has opened, and Mark dives into the action there with chats with a sex worker, a PrEP activist, and a New Zealand gay man who explains exactly how cruisy the conference really is. Hint: there are always a ton of committed advocates in the mood – and phone apps reveal they are less than twenty feet away.

For most Americans, tonight’s debate was the most time they’ve ever spent with Donald Trump. With any luck, it filled them with horror. For sheer unhinged lunacy, Trump was hard to beat. He can’t ever admit that he makes a mistake, so he doubled down on his birtherism lies. He denied saying things he was proven to [...]
Well, that didn’t take long. Donald Trump decided that the way he proves he looks presidential is to start shouting over the woman in the room (and the African-American moderator). Unfortunately for him, Hillary isn’t a sub. If anything, she’s showing that she’s the dom here by goading Trump. Her line that he’s not paying any taxes [...]
Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis. And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
